Holbeach Hospital staged its annual summer fayre where residents mixed with family, friends and visitors to enjoy a host of activities.

Choirs from Whaplode Primary School and University Academy Holbeach sang to a supportive audience and children raced to a face painting stand.

There were also craft, ice cream and burger stalls, weaving demonstrations and a display of war memorabilia by Ted Proctor.

More than £1,000 was raised towards a residents’ comfort fund and manager Loraine Wigston said: “It was an absolutely brilliant day, the weather held up and it was lovely to see the community supporting us as well.”
